GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:

Mother called it the greatest and most terrifying moment in her life. Standing at the head of the surgical table, knowing that the patient's life depends on you and you alone. It's what we all dream about. Because the first person that gets to fly solo in the OR ... kind of a bad ass.


GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:
We enter the world alone and we leave it alone and everything that happens in between we owe it to ourselves to find a little company. We need help, we need support, otherwise we are in it by ourselves. Strangers, cut off from each other, and we forget, just how connected we all are. So instead, we choose love, we choose life, and, for a moment, we feel just a little bit less alone.
